When making my eco pants there are, of course, bits of the t shirts left over, sometimes quite large pieces. As one of my basic rules on in my shop is 'nothing gets wasted' I have to find a way of using these pieces.
This is my latest invention, a cotton jersey teacloth made in the 'crazy patchwork' style, they are all slightly different sizes but are all bigger than a standard tea towel. I have sewn the back as well as the front of the pieces so there are all sorts of mysterious shapes within the patches, the stitching is a honeycomb stretch stitch so will not break with use and all have a stretchy edging, so quite hardwearing.
In the tradition of teatowels you could put it up on the wall as an artwork and when you need to dry the dishes take it down, a must for art students who want abstract artworks that they can dry the washing up with!
recycling, upcycled, unusual, practical, useful, attractive, teatowel
The aim of my shop is to find a way of utilising every bit of the fabric I get for something, wherever possible something with a practical use.
I am finding the two simple criteria, only fabrics that have been used for something else and use every scrap, leads me to the most interesting things!
